I work on a combined NICU/PICU - it has only just incorporated a PICU and most of the staff do not like working in the PICU side of things.
I am almost finished my NICU qualification and am being encourgaed by my manager to do the PICU course next year (I only have to do 2 units to become qualified and it is free!).
I do not enjoy working in Paeds ward - it is too much pandemonium for me.
How different is PICU from PAEDS nursing?
Will it be easier to pick up now i am ok with ventilation etc?
I have been an adult ICU RN - is it similar ?
Any tips of points of interest welcomed
